As part of our community blog content at ON THE MOVE, we present our interview series, where we invite movers to bring their thoughts not only on the physical move but on the intensely personal experience of moving house. Here we explore the spirituality and psychology of Home and why where we live means so much to us. We want to hear your story, please share it with us.
Man in the city is a primary focus of my painting. I am interested in seeing the “earthly” Jerusalem as one encounters it in everyday life, the nitty-gritty of the streets people walk on, the vistas of the here and now. An un-pretty urban reality requires breaking the convention of Jerusalem’s image. The geometry of the city structures as they interconnect, the dance of the strong summer light on building facades, or the more subtle interplay of greys in the overcast light of the winter each add another facet to our view of city life. City streets have poetic and often overlooked qualities which provide an alternative version of beauty.
